ACER 28" 4K FreeSync Monitor £279 @ AO

29
Found 4th MarEdited by:"Crazycasper13"
Been looking for a 4k monitor for a while now, tried the Electriq one from laptops direct for £229 but was broken on arrival and their service was awful.
This looks a great deal, 1ms response time, AMD freesync etc and seems to be around £330 elsewhere
Looks like 3% via Quidco also!
My first post so go easy on me

Good find,but keep in mind its probably a VA monitor not IPS!


Useful to explain the difference :

"VA panels provide a good middle ground with better-than-IPS refresh rates and contrast levels, but have worse viewing angles and color production, although generally still better than TN. Response times areVA's largest downfall, though, being slower than IPSand its variants and TN" Source: gamersnexus.net/gui…crt

Good deal for specs but shame no major reviews on this. AO often have money off vouchers, worth looking out for some.

Could I use this for productivity at 4K but then game at 1080p (I think its divisible exactly) as my graphics card wont be able to cope with gaming (rx470) or would i be better off looking at 1440

Yes it's TN but on a budget not going to get a 4k IPS
You don't need to do colour work on it but for gaming 4K and 75hz with Freesync is pretty great for this money. Course the high end AMD GPUs you need to run native 4K games are pretty pants but still.
They've also got a 27" QuadHD Acer monitor for £199 - ao.com/pro…spx
Sorry guys im clueless on monitors etc this good for the xbox one x? Dont want a 4k tv as so used to smaller screens. Thanks
Vesa? Usually that's why they're a bit cheaper

It needs HDMI 2.0 to work with Xbox x and this has no hdr
Is it 75hz, I’m sure the Acer website has it listed at 60. acer.com/ac/…003
Good to see the prices for 4k monitors coming down. I am waiting for one less than £140 and I will snap it up
Eeeek it's TN panel but ok for budget

I'm buying to replace 1080p 24" Samsung for One X and PC
Thinking of replacing my Apple 27” LED Cinema Display and wondering if this is superior since they don’t make the apple screens anymore? I’m used to having built in speakers but not important... anyone able to give me the heads up since I’m not an expert on them... thanks!

You will be waiting a very long time. Maybe indefinitely.
Guys n Gals, can a helpful soul clue me up as to whether this is a perfect match for PS4 Pro or not? Failing that, what monitor is? I've been looking at the LG 32UD59 as it seems to tick many boxes but is £500. I'd sell a kidney to afford it but I already sold both of mine.

This is fine if you want to play games 4K on PS4 Pro. It doesn't have HDR which is very important if you want the full PS4 pro experience. Thing is, very little monitors have 4K and HDR - the one's that do, are very expensive.

I'm personally waiting for 4K & HDR monitors to drop in price before I bite and get a pro or an X.

Has anyone tried the Acer 27" version. For the price it looks a bargain but there are no reviews online.

I own the lg32ud59 . Pm me if you want more details as I solely use it for my pro and soon to be Xbox one x. I can email you pics if it helps. I've moved from a 27 inch ips monitor. Will share my thoughts .

According to Displayspecification the HDMI port is 1.4 so if true you might not be able to play in 4K60 on your One X, it's sold out at the moment but I was looking at this for my nephew who has been looking for a monitor for his one x, and a 1ms respond time with 4K would make a great monitor for gaming.
Not bad. Shame it’s sold out.

75hz with freesync at 4k gets heat from me anyway. Shame it’s not GSync at that price

Pants? My Vega 56 says otherwise. Great card.

Sure if you were happy to wait over a year to get less performance for more money with worse coolers and much greater power consumption.

I mean. I couldn't get a card before that anyway. Got it on release week. It's undervolted, doesn't actually produce that much heat and is still a better card than the 1070 so hate as much as you want. Doesn't change my experience with it.

for someone who bought it on release at retail price, yes it was a good card. These days you can buy a 1080Ti Strix for the same money. Current prices have it as one of the poorest options on the market.

Indeed. I'm not saying anyone should buy one at the current price but to say it's a poor card was just wrong.

All GPUs have been affected in their price which sucks but it might be this way for a long time.
